After yesterday's successful project, I once again felt the urge to heartily recommend some of the unsung heroes of the tool world. Perhaps I should turn it into a recurring feature...
[Yeah, I know. Really exciting]
Anyway, yesterday's hero was my drill.
I finally bought a real drill when we moved after years of struggling with a gutless rechargeable drill that couldn't bore through a loaf of bread without needing a battery change. Installing that oven with my old POS Black & Decker would have been a nightmare...that thing would've shit its pants when I broke out the 2" hole saw.
Hitachi D13VF 9 Amp 1/2-Inch Drill $100-125. I can't recommend this thing highly enough. It's maiden voyage was to punch a 6-inch hole in the side of the house to vent a dryer, and it hasn't looked back since. Awesome.
